Five Shades of Grey - Chest of Drawers Retro Refurb

OK, I know as a title it's now a bit of a cliche, but couldn't resist!  I picked up this really neat little chest of drawers recently.



These pieces of 1960s teak furniture are great to work with.  I just love those spikey little legs.  Here's how she looked before the refurb.


She's in great condition - a shame one of the daisy designed handles was missing as they could have been given a new life here.


I took two paint colours - Roman White and Nearly Black and colour mixed until I got the shades I wanted and then sealed everything with a couple of coats of clear wax.


This piece could be dressed up to be very dramatic and would look great in any room.


The new handles have been painted and blend in beautifully without interrupting the impact of five shades.
